Is the course required or an elective for a Curriculum?
No
This course covers the basic principles and concepts of financial and managerial accounting. Students will learn about the role of accounting in business including how to prepare basic financial statements and how accounting information is used by: (1) external stakeholders (i.e., stockholders, creditors and government) to evaluate the financial performance of an organization; and (2) internal users (management) to fulfill the planning, control and performance evaluation functions.

This is a service course that will be offered to students outside of the Poole College of Management who need only one accounting course for their major or minor. It will provide a survey of both financial and managerial accounting topics.
